Chelsea’s Champions League match against Bayern Munich will be played behind closed doors at the Allianz Arena due to concerns over coronavirus.
Chelsea lost 3-0 to Bayern Munich in the first leg at Stamford Bridge and the Blues will play the second leg of the tie at Munich on Wednesday, 18 March, behind closed doors.
The decision to play the game behind closed doors comes after the Bavarian state opted to cancel all events with over 1,000 attendees, which means Bayern’s home game against Dusseldorf will also be played behind closed doors.
No Bayern or Chelsea fans will subsequently watch on at the Allianz Arena, and some Chelsea fans believe that this could work in favour of Chelsea.
One Blues fan posted on Twitter: “I’m gonna take it. No pressure from Bayern fans, maybe there can be a breakthrough for us with current form”.
Another supported: “Music to my ears, we definitely advancing to the next stage.”
Another optimistic Chelsea fan posted: “We are beating them!!!!”
“Comeback incoming,” another Blues aired in.
Another assured supporter predicted: “Lol nobody will see this comeback of a lifetime”.
A Blues fan was quick to point out: “Bayern without home support and their star striker….. We need at least 3 goals then Kepa can be PK hero again like in EL semis last season”.
